This book of snapshot memories was a gift to Jerome Jackson Waters Jr. from John N. Olson; both of the graduating class of 1913, on the event of their 1938 class reunion. The 1913 long horn shows that they were both members of the Civil Engineering Society. It is uncertain how the School of Veterinary Medicine came to have this collection of photographs, but they show the look of the campus landscape circa 1930's. In 1938, Jerome Waters became an Instructor at Illinois National Guard. In 1941, he became Commanding Officer of 6th Training Regiment. From 1942 to 1944 he was appointed Commanding Officer Artillery 76th Division. From 1944 to 1945, he was Commanding Officer Artillery XXXII Corps. Brig. Gen. Jerome J. Waters passed away in 1972.
